Please note:

  • You should not come if you have symptoms of COVID-19, are living in a household with someone who has a possible or confirmed COVID-19 infection, have been asked to isolate by NHS Test and Trace, or are serving a quarantine period after travel.
  • You should only come if you believe travelling to this event is within the letter and the spirit of the Government rules about travel in force at the time. Travel to orienteering events is allowed – and sharing cars is also within the British Orienteering guidelines.
  • While at the event you should continue to follow social distancing guidelines and give space and be courteous to members of the public.
Area The event will take place alongside the River Colne with the map covering Colney Heath and surrounding fields, a series of flooded gravel pits, mature woodland around Tyttenhanger House and getting as far as Willows Farm for the braver runners. This is a fantastic area for wildlife if you can tear yourself away from the map reading. If you have never visited before you are in for a surprise. This event will use a newly surveyed standard orienteering map at 1:10,000 (not the usual Street-O map).
